As if getting into a car accident isn’t enough, occasionally people get into car accidents with drivers that only have a small amount of car insurance. It is highly possible that the motorist has insufficient funds to compensate you fully. In such cases, you may have Underinsured Motorist Coverage through your own insurance carrier, and you may need the help of an underinsured motorist attorney to collect the compensation you rightfully deserve.
Whether from an auto accident or motorcycle accident, underinsured motorist coverage may allow you to receive the monetary funds from the at-fault driver with additional money. If you are afraid to file an underinsured motorist claim because you fear that doing so may lead to higher premiums, do not worry. This fear is unfounded. Was it your fault that the driver at fault did not have sufficient coverage? It was not. Therefore, Maryland law does not allow your insurance company to penalize you for making this type of claim.
We recommend that victims with underinsured motorist claims contact one of our Germantown personal injury lawyers immediately. This is especially important in this type of claim because you have to make sure that you notify your insurance carrier that you need to make this claim in an expeditious manner. Do not wait any longer! Take advantage of our familiarity with the underinsured motorist claim process so that you don’t leave money that you may be entitled to unclaimed.
